Thanks NSF! This site is funded partly by you!

Hey folks, I’m working on a final report for a grant and am reminded that I must both acknowledge NSF support and put in a disclaimer. I view this work as broader impacts for the funding I have received from NSF since I began the blog. Here is what I’m supposed to tell you, quoted directly from NSF.

You and your institution are responsible for assuring that any publication including World Wide Web pages developed under or based on NSF support of your project includes an acknowledgment of that support in the following terms:

“This material is based upon work supported by the National Science Foundation under Grant Number (NSF Grant Number)”

You and your institution are also responsible for assuring that every publication of material (including World Wide Web pages) based on or developed under award, (other than a scientific article or paper appearing in a scientific, technical, or professional journal), contains the following disclaimer:

“Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation.”

I am guessing you will not be surprised to hear my views don’t reflect those of NSF necessarily. But I think they support my goal of opening up the process of academia to a broader set of investigators.

I think I should put this acknowledgement and disclaimer on another more general page, like the About one, but forget how for the moment.
